Hello, Ms. Evan Seizer, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Tooth extraction from the gums is called tooth extraction, which is usually done on problematic teeth and it is already impossible to maintain and repair. Tooth extraction can be done without surgery, but if there are complications so that the extraction is difficult to do with ordinary techniques, then the dentist will perform surgery or tooth extraction (odontectomy). Usually done on teeth that have no visible crown because of a broken or inclined growth and pressing the teeth next to it (impacted teeth).
After the tooth extraction is done, generally what happens is a mild bleeding that decreases and disappears shortly thereafter. Mild swelling can occur because the act of course makes the gum tissue injury and the body responds to the injury by releasing blood cells and other bleeding inhibitors but will give the effect of swelling and pain in the gums. This is very natural. However, if the swelling is felt to be very large and appears feverish, a lot of possibilities that occur, including:
swelling that occurs makes you lazy to drink, so the body will become dehydrated and marked fever in the body
the presence of a large enough wound on the tooth extraction gums, so that the swelling is large enough and the chemicals produced are quite a lot, in addition to causing pain sometimes the chemicals produced make the body a slightly higher body temperature than normal temperature
the possibility of bacterial infection due to large wounds are not maintained clean and become a breeding ground for germs. This can occur if oral hygiene is not properly addressed
We recommend that you consult your dentist who pulls out your tooth, because your dentist is more aware of the condition of your teeth before being extracted, and the technique for extracting your teeth and handling them afterwards. While at home, you can prevent worsening swelling and fever that can increase, between with:
keep brushing regularly at least 2x a day in the morning after breakfast and at night before going to sleep, and you can use mouthwash to ensure that your mouth is clean between your teeth
avoid foods that are too hot or cold, and spicy foods
still consume drugs given by the dentist according to the rules that were delivered
You can compress your teeth with ice covered with a small towel and put on the cheeks according to the position of the swollen gums
do not use the side of a sore mouth to chew food
when brushing your teeth avoid contacting the gums where the teeth are removed
don't smoke because it can slow down the healing process
So that we can convey, hopefully useful. That's all
